MAX-Q10 is sold an over-the-counter supplement recommended as a highly potent energy booster due to a patented clinically proven form of Co Q10. The formula is manufactured and marketed by the American producer Stop Aging Now, a company with an international activity in the nutritional supplements industry since 1995.
MAX-Q10 is advertised ad made with the highly bioavailable Kaneka Q10, a form that is most commonly used in the clinical trials conducted so far. This is claimed as bio-identical to the CoQ10 produced naturally within the body, which makes it a more potent and safe product. Also, the fact that the active ingredient is natural makes it more readily absorbed as compared to synthetic based supplements.
The other active extract is a patented form of black pepper (BioPerine) standardized to contain 95% piperine. This standardized compound has been allegedly shown to increase Co-Q10 absorption by over 30%. The formulation is available in three different forms: soft gel, capsule, and chewable. At the moment, only the soft gel form includes the standardized extract BioPerine.
The formula is suited for adults who are not currently on any other medication, except pregnant and nursing women. The safety in these cases has not been fully evaluated, so getting professional help is the recommended option.
MAX-Q10 contains the following ingredients: CoEnzyme Q10 (from Kaneka Q10™) (100% natural trans-form) (as ubiquinone), and BioPerine Black Pepper Extract (Piper nigrum) (standardized to 95% piperine) (soft gel version only).
CoQ10 is a naturally occurring substance involved in the processes of energy production in the mitochondria. CoQ10 levels have been noticed to decline after the age of 30, and by the age of 70, the levels of this essential nutrient reach critically low levels, resulting in numerous health concerns (cognitive and cardiovascular diseases, increased risk of cancers, etc.). A proper supplementation with this substance may help prevent or delay the installment of the symptoms associated with these conditions. Research involving CoQ10–s targets a broad spectrum of conditions including in the treatment of various cancers (breast, prostate), hepatitis, over-weight problems, Parkinson–s and Alzheimer–s disease, muscle conditions and movement disorders (resulted from damage to the nervous system), etc.
Early evidence suggests that the use of CoQ10 has been effective only in the case of certain health concerns, mostly to reduce memory problems associated with aging, treat gum disease, and prevent or alleviate some of the symptoms of heart disease). There is no strong evidence that CoQ10 is effective as a stand-alone treatment or in combination with traditional medicine in many of the health claims attributed to the compound. Some of the adverse reactions associated with CoQ10 are nausea, stomach distress, vomiting, and adverse skin reactions. The compound has been shown to lower blood pressure, so people who have such health problems or are taking medication designed to lower blood pressure should be aware of the potential unwanted effects caused by the use of a CoQ10 supplement.

The MAX-Q10 formula is advertised as a superior CoQ10 based formulation available in three different forms, to suit the different needs of its consumers. The official page of the formula provides enough information about the numerous potential benefits resulted from consuming such a supplement, the source of the active ingredients and the product–s distinctive features. The web page also provides a section with testimonials from clients who have tried the formula, suggesting that this supplement is effective in improving thinking and memory. However, the number of relevant testimonials is rather limited at the moment of this review.
Although the active ingredient is advertised as a clinically researched and proven an effective product, Max-Q10 is not a clinically researched formula itself. More so, certain unwanted effect may occur if used improperly or by people under certain medication. To avoid the occurrence of unwanted reactions, it is best to inform a specialized practitioner before starting using the formula.
